Abstract:   (1939 Views)
We perform a theoretical investigation on the Goos-Häenchen shift (the lateral shift) in one-dimensional photonic crystals (1DPCs) containing left-handed (LH) metamaterials. The effect was studied by use of a Gaussian beam. We show that the giant lateral displacement is due to the localization of the electromagnetic wave which can be both positive and negative depending on the incidence angle of Gaussian beam that can be excited the forward and backward surface states, respectively. Dependence of beam width on the incidence angle of beam and thickness of air layer for both backward and forward surface states are studied in this paper. We also find that the weak lossy in LH layers of 1DPCs may affect these shifts. These giant negative and positive lateral shifts are smaller than that of the lossless structure.
